Autumn Term A, Week 1

 

Welcome back to school. Our Hedgehogs of the days have been Teddy and Sophia.

We begin to choose our stars of the week next week.

We had a wonderful week, learning how to keep safe and happy in school and washing our hands lots. We met our friends and began the school routines again.

 

Hello and a very warm welcome to Year 1 Hedgehog Class Page!

 

Hedgehog Class Teacher is Mrs Nicholls and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Short.

 

We are very much looking forward to working with your child and settling them into their new class in September.

 

Here is some useful information:

 

P.E. days are Mondays and Fridays (full kit required for both). As the weather gets chillier, track suit bottoms and a jumper would be useful for outdoor games.

 

You do not need to provide your child with a pencil case or any stationery - we have supplies in school. This prevents anything from getting lost.

 

Please ensure your child brings a water bottle and a healthy snack everyday.

 

Many thanks in advance for your help and co-operation. We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 4th September!
